A few weeks back I had this wonderful young woman in one of my Viking classes, the event was a wedding shower. We made home made ravioli’s and a quick and easy tomato sauce….I promised her and her friends that I would post the recipe … sorry it’s taken me a while, but here you go…and btw…thank you so much for the thoughtful card and calendar….
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 small shallot, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 cup red wine
2 cans diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
black pepper to taste
In a medium saucepan heat oil over medium low heat. Add shallots, garlic, fennel seeds and red pepper flakes. Cook until transparent, about 5 minutes. Deglaze with red wine and add remaining ingredients. Simmer over low heat for 30 minutes. Serve over pasta! Enjoy and I wish you and Jairus a wonderful wedding and a very long healthy and happy life together as husband and wife!!!
